Service summary

Evergreen Primary School

Evergreen Primary School is a maintained day special school for children aged 2-11 years. Children will be provided with a personalised and appropriately paced and differentiated curriculum which has three pathways Roots for Learning, Foundations for the National Curriculum and Adapted National Curriculum. Other frameworks used are SCERTS for those children who have ASC and Quest for those children who have PMLD.

At Evergreen School the pupil’s identified needs will be significant and often complex in the area of cognition and learning including moderate and severe learning difficulties or profound and multiple learning difficulties as described in the SEN Code of Practice. The pupils may also have associated needs in the areas of emotional/social and communication and interaction such as autistic spectrum condition and/or speech and language difficulties. In addition, pupils may have sensory or physical difficulties. The admission arrangements for our pupils can be found within SEND area of our website. Admission comes via the EHCP process as determined by the Local Authority.

More detail on the curriculum and our commitment to high quality educational provision for all our children is detailed in the School Curriculum area of our website.
We have a wide range of staff working together within the school to support the children, young people and their families. Some are employed directly by the School, others have different lines of management.

Classroom staff are employed directly by the school. This includes teachers, teaching assistants and Health, Care and Education Assistants. Admin staff are also school employees.

Other professionals work for a range of agencies – some are based within the school, others have office bases elsewhere and work in school on particular days or as necessary.

School Nurses, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, LDCAMHS team and Physiotherapists are employees of the NHS. All these professionals work within school training staff, advising staff, working with children and young people.

The SEND Inclusion Service staff – advisory teachers - are employed by the Local Authority, not the school, and are within the Children Specialist Services team. They work with individual children and provide advice on individual children's needs.

Transport to school is organised by the Local Authority not the school. Transport staff are employed by the transport companies.

There are social workers for children/young people with disabilities who are Local Authority Employees and are based within the Children Specialist Services.

All contact numbers for support services, described above, are available from the school office. If you have a query relating to these areas it is best to contact the professionals directly. This will ensure that your message/queries/concerns are dealt with in the most efficient way.
